In 2010 an earthquake devastated Haiti, leading to one of the world’s worst cholera outbreaks in over a century. GHESKIO clinical treatment centers and the MASS Design Group, a firm that promotes justice and human dignity through architecture, joined together to design a project to address the underlying structural and social conditions that allow cholera to thrive. Join us to learn about this inspiring project and discuss comprehensive and trans-disciplinary approaches to achieving improved health in Haiti and around the globe.
